So my father in law goes down to local dealer to get an order sorted for a new KR F350.

Dealer spits out $78K to him. Now he just bought his brother in last year for $71K and reminds them.

They go “oh yeah we forgot to put your fleet number in” and truck goes down to $71k

How big does your “fleet” need to be? He buys 1 truck a year and it’s a “fleet”?

Can I piggy back on his fleet or is just for the dealer blowing smoke?

I think you use your Tax ID to give proof. It might require the business name be on the paperwork. I'm not speaking from experience, just throwing ideas out there.

There's some dealers that have a specific fleet sales team, I'd find one and ask questions.

I do have a tax ID. The IRS squeezes everyone at my biz

So it is “cheaper” than X plan or invoice? I guess I’ll just have to go and find out

I was told fleet sales are based on quantity out the door, not specifically focused on $$$$ per sale.

I'm betting in fleet sales they aren't trying to keep the hold back. So that might save you an additional $2k.

I am not sure which one is better. We just bought our first new trucks. Bought 2 of them at the same time. So we did alot of negotiating. But the fleet pricing helped. List was 148k combined. After 4 dealerships we got both trucks, which were both special orders(due to color and being a 450 and a 550), for 122k. No idea how much of that 26k discount was fleet pricing.
